It depends upon the tenant and there is no impediment in law to let out the said property for a rent. Only if there is a counter claim in respect of the rent naturally the tenant is unable to pay the rent in such situation. In your case you are already having a registered Will in your favour. The probate will not be done within 1 month and hence don't fall for it. Having said that with or without probate you can let out your property and receive rent. You need not disclose all these facts to your tenant and he has no business to seek those information.

Normally the will has to be probated and by virtue of the will you can claim the property as your own and you can do whatever you want . But sometimes the person who is going to be your tenant decides not to vacate then he can challenge your right saying that the will was not probated.
